Donald Wolcott, Chief Executive, RusPetro plc, said: “2011 was a year of growth and strategic development for RusPetro. We achieved all our production and reserves growth objectives together with a substantial step-up in our technical understanding of the subsurface across our licence areas. Collectively, these developments provided a solid platform for our successful listing on the London Stock Exchange in early 2012. We floated our company, on schedule, raising net proceeds of $240m, at a time when capital markets were cautious of new issuers.Since the start of 2012 we have made strong progress. Our infrastructure build out is ahead of plan, most notably with the completion of a new pipeline to the Transneft trunk line, which will have an appreciable impact on operating costs. We are also pleased with the rate of progress on a range of other processing equipment which will allow us to cater for accelerating production over the coming eighteen months. With a busy programme planned for the year we are confident we are on the right track in our path to growth.”
